Hi! Well... I finished the NIGHT WORLD books and I must say I really enjoyed them. It was well written and very interesting. I definately recommend it to you. If you're at all like me, once I start reading a book, I find any excuse I can to sneak away for a few minutes and read a few pages. I usually carry the book with me where ever I go in the house like a security blanket. LOL. It drives the Hubby nuts though. LOL. I have to get THE VAMPIRE DIARIES today!

I still feel like I need a good TWILIGHT fix too. I was on Angies Blog (IKEA GODDESS) a few days ago and she recommended a fanfic named I Love LA. Click HERE to read. It's about a 33 year old actress/singer who falls in love with the man himself, Rob Pattinson. I was a bit apprensive about the whole "real" person story but thought i'd give it a read, well.... it is very steamy! No, not steamy, pornographic! BUT AWESOME!!! If you are the type of person who is easily offended, this story is definately not for you. There's lots of "four letter words" and "mature" content. It's amazingly well written and the author also gives you a playlist of songs that she wants to to listen to while reading the story to get the full effect. AWESOME!!! If you are a real RPattz fan, you'll love this story. I have a few chapters left to read so hopefully later today i'll get a chance to finish it. If you're intersted in reading other Twlight themed fanfiction go to Some of the stories aren't that good, or well written either but if you push through them, you'll be sure to find some gems. My favorite one yet has to be "AN UNTITLED CONTINUATION OF THE TWILIGHT SAGA". Click HERE to read. It continues on from where Breaking Dawn ends off. It's really good and suitable for all ages.

Today i'm taking the kids and heading into Calgary for the day. I have to go to Chapters to get my new books first. Then we're going for lunch and possibly the splash park. Still trying to round up some friends to meet us there. Should be a great day. The sun is shining, the birds are singing, you get the drift. Haha!

So that brings us to todays wordart freebie. Enjoy!

Happy Monday Morning! I hope you all had an awesome weekend! We did too! It was so great. On Saturday morning we got up and took the kids out to McDonalds for breakfast. I know we had planned on taking the kids to IKEA but the streets around it was closed off so we couldn't get in there. McDonalds was the closest so we ate there. Aiden stuffed himself, as usual. LOL. Emma was really into dipping her english muffin in ketchup and then wiping it off with a napkin. Gross! She wouldn't eat it but she had lots of fun. We then spent the rest of the day shopping. It was soooooo hot we decided that we would stick to places with lots of AC. All in all we had a great day. I didn't get to get my shelves so a trip to IKEA is still planned for next weekend. We had a great bbq for supper and then watched HOTEL FOR DOGS. It was a really cute movie and anything with dogs is perfect for my kids. They love dogs. Sunday was a lazy day. It was cooler, only reaching 26 degrees so we decided to bake some cookies and cook a big supper. I made chocolate chip cookies and macaroons. The macaroons were to sweet. Next time, less sugar.

I got an eamil from my friend Lori a few days ago and she wanted me to make her a set of summer themed wordart that she could use to make a Brag Book Album for her kids summer pics. She gave me a whole list of titles that she wanted to use. I played around with them and if I do say so myself, I think they're pretty cute. Very simple in the styling. For all the "written" words I used the font Stephanie Marie JF and for the rest I used An Unfortunate Event Dewarped. I really like how they turned out and i'm definately going to use them for my summer pics too. So... for the next 2 weeks, maybe 3 weeks, you'll be getting each of these as your freebie. Here is the first.

TGIF! This has been a long week. It's been so hot in the night time that i've been having a hard time sleeping. Then of course, once I do get to sleep, the kids decide they're getting up at 6AM. Oh the trials of motherhood! LOL. Does anyone have any plans for this weekend? I think we're going into Calgary to do some shopping. I have to go to IKEA and get a new bookcase for my books. And possibly one for the kids. I wanted to find one with deep shelves so I can put some wicker baskets in them so the kids can have their toys and books and such in them. And of course while we're there we have to eat breakfast. They have the best breakfast for only$2! If you haven't had it before, I definately suggest you do.

As you can tell from the title of this post.... Aiden's Birthday is coming up! Yay! My little man will be turning 2 on August 6th!

I AM SOOOOO TIRED! I had a rough night with Aiden last night and i've only gotten about 3 hours sleep. The boy is almost 2 but he still sleeps like a newborn. I'm very lucky if I get one night a week that he actually sleeps longer than 20 minutes at a time! Emma looked at me a few minutes ago and said "Mommy, your eyes are scary". I didn't think I looked that bad until I actually got a chance to look in the mirror. YIKES! Scary!
Yesterday, I decided that I needed a new bookmark! I've been using a piece of paper from my notebook and I keep loosing it. I created this beautiful set of bookmarks using my new kit MAGICAL! I just love them. You can get them at both of my stores now for 25% OFF! That's only $1.50 until the end of the week!

Todays wordart is a great one! I really liked this quote. I hope you do too. Check back tomorrow and get the sister version.

MAGICAL: My new kit, plus a new wordart freebie!

Happy Monday Morning to you all! I hope that everyone had a great weekend, I know that I did. I didn't do anything special but I got to spend lots of quality time with my family. It was wonderful! On Saturday we went shopping at Walmart. Emma had been asking to go for days. We took the kids to McDonald's for lunch... chicken nuggets, fries, and happy meal puppie toys. The kids loved them. Usually when we go shopping, Aiden always fusses. It makes the whole experience almost unbearable. Well, I was a little smarter this time... I took Aiden's big, comfy stroller so he could lie back and take a nap. He slept for almost 2 hours and we actually got all of our shopping done! Yay! I needed some new containers so I bought 3 new packs of the Rubbermaid Take Alongs. I love them for freezing soups, stews and sauces in. The lids are great.

I was in some desperate need of some new books to read! I've read the whole Twilight Saga now at least 5 times and I was about to start reading New Moon again. I'm really into the whole Vampire genre so I was looking for that type of series. I found the NIGHT WORLD Series and it looks promising. It's written by L.J. Smith. There are 3 books in the series, with 3 stories per book. I started reading it yesterday and it's not bad. Her writing style is completely different from Stephenie Myers but once I got into it, I like it! She's also the author of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES! I gotta get that next!

On Sunday, we decided to stay at home and do some cooking and baking. I roasted a chicken and had some veggies for supper. It was awesome! I also baked 62 chocolate chip cookies! YUMMY! It sounds like a lot but I made them mini's so they're the perfect size for the kiddos. They love my cookies! After supper was eaten and all the dishes loaded into the dishwasher, I watched this weeks episode of TRUE BLOOD! I just love that show! I gotta get that book series too. Oh my.. so many books and not enough hours in the day to read them all. LOL.

Wow... that's the most i've written in a long tome. LOL. Let's get down to business than. Here is my new kit... MAGICAL. I'm really getting into these 2 toned kits lately. This beautiful kit is full of amazing treasures to create a magical feel for your layouts. A unique and summery fresh color palette of luscious pinks and soft creamy yellows with just a hint of coppery goodness. It has a very simple theme with both realistic and digital elements. And for the rest of this week, MAGICAL is on sale for 25% OFF! You can get this kit at both my PRETTYSCRAPPY and DIGIRIDOO stores.

Included in this kit:
9 pink papers
3 yellow papers,
1 button
1 clip
1 copper heart
1 curled ribbon
1 curled ribbon frame
7 flowers
1 foggy moon
2 frames

SMILE...It's Contagious!

Hey! Sorry I haven't been around the past few days but having 2 sick kids limits my computer time. They're feeling much better today but they're still under the weather. The two of them are cuddled up in the chair with a blankie watching The RugRats Big Movie! Aiden is totally addicted to them! As soon as he wakes up he starts asking for it. Emma on the other hand is sooo sick of the movie that she crys evertime it comes on. But, usually after its on for a few minutes, she calms down and watches it too.

So... here is todays wordart freebie! Enjoy!
